Yes becaus Emirates now fly their, I caught a B777 landing there on the way home as the planes pass over the motorway before landing it looked amazing but I wish I saw a A380 that would be on a whole new level

Is it complete and in use in real life?

Yes, I just watched a video of a cockpit view landing (a low quality video) and it had the extension. The video is from 2010.

Yes it would be as the A380 is now operated there otherwise it can’t draw in more airline or bigger planes unless it also has a A380 stand, there has been a lot of expansion in terms of airlines now operating there Qatar now fly there and they have nonstop flights to India which will certainly be popular

There are a few A380 stands.

How many exactly I doubt any other airline other then Emorates will use them though haha

I guess that makes sense then as they aren’t particularly for just that aircraft thanks for the Info

So they are converting the DT to a normal part of the runway?

That picture is old, the extension is long done. A380 Fly’s in daily (Emirates).

Yes, I know, but I couldn’t find any satellite imagery with the extension.
